Student Life & Advocacy Commission
Student Life and Advocacy is a commission under the Office of the Internal Vice President. We are a group of motivated student leaders that are passionate about student wellness and disability. Student wellness encompasses topics such as stress-management, diet/exercise, sexual health, drug/alcohol use, and other habits that promote a healthy lifestyle. We also work to ensure students with disabilities, visible or not, are represented and given the tools to succeed. We believe that health should be every student’s priority and a key factor contributing to both academic and personal success. If you have any questions comments, feel free to email email@example.com.
This year, we plan to educate UCI’s population on the importance of health and how to adapt a healthy lifestyle, as well as, give a voice and advocate for students with a visible or invisible disability. To accomplish this, we will hold educational workshops, utilize Ring Road, take advantage of social media, and other events to spread knowledge amongst students. We will also collaborate with other campus organizations and resources to build a positive community surrounding the topic of student wellness. Our long term goals are to create a safe and healthy UCI campus in which all students feel included and welcomed.
Hello! My name is Jessica Oshiro and I am your Student Life and Advocacy Commissioner for the 2017-2018 school year. I am a 3rd year Biological Sciences major. Last year, I was an intern for the Student Life and Advocacy Commission and the year before that, I was an intern for the Campus Task Force Commission, which unfortunately no longer exists. From the experience I gained from being an intern of this commission, I not only learned about the commission’s topics and how it operates but also strengthened my passion for student health and disability. I am excited for what the Student Life and Advocacy commission will accomplish this upcoming year and for the opportunity to serve you as this year’s Student Life and Advocacy Commissioner!
